Editor's Pick: The Armor Body Dress
Fall is officially in full swing and before you know it, holiday party invites are going to begin rolling in and the eternal search for the perfect ‘little black dress’ will begin. Lusso, an eclectic boutique located on Carondolet Plaza, just steps away from the Ritz Carlton, has just what you’re looking for; enter the Armor Body dress by Yoana Baraschi.
This dress is a great alternative to your standard ‘LBD’ because the tux-inspired panels are done in a deep blue creating more depth and interest to the classic silhouette. The simple shape and modest neckline makes this piece great for the office; toss your favorite blazer or cardigan over your shoulders and you’ll be on high-shine and in-style.
Romanian-born designer Yoana Baraschi grew up with the world of art and fashion at her fingertips. Baraschi inherited her creativity and dedication to the arts from her father, Constantin Baraschi, a leading figure and sculptor in the Romanian art scene as well as her mother Elli who is an educator and true fashion icon. With a bevy of design experience under her belt from a four-year stay in Paris, Baraschi packed up and headed for New York where she most notably worked as Creative Director at Betsey Johnson. Her opulent fall collection is rife with artisan-style embroidery and unexpected sequin details in shapes that work for an everyday woman.
